Loup and the Blue Jays agreed to a one-year, $1.05 million contract on January 15, 2016. A flexor injury in Loup’s left forearm forced him to miss the start of the season.
On May 14, he reported to the Dunedin Blue Jays for his first day of rehab. In order to complete his recovery from his injury, he was promoted to the Buffalo Bisons on May 21.
On August 21, Loup was recalled. He was placed on optional waivers on August 27. That night, he agreed to go to a minor league camp the next day. He finished the year with a 5.02 ERA.
A one-year deal for $1.125 million was signed by Loup on January 13, 2017. His season ended with a 2–3 record and a 3.75 ERA in 70 games, with a career-high 4.5 walks per nine innings in his final seven outings.

Wyatt Aaron is the first son and second child of Aaron and his wife. Wyatt was born in 2015.
Sophie Harper Loup is the first daughter and the first child. She was born in August 2013. During her birth, the first thing Leighann Loup did when she went into labor was phone her husband.
Aaron Loup, a bullpen pitcher for the Blue Jays, was on the road in Houston for a series against the Astros in August, while she was at their New Orleans home.
The soon-to-be father couldn’t sleep because he had just spoken to his girlfriend a few hours ago and the kid was coming in a few days.
For the first time in a long time, Loup was able to fall asleep, but it was only for a brief time. When his phone rang at 5 a.m., he knew what it meant: a text message.
